Public Works

What We Do

The Thompson Public Works Department handles a wide range of infrastructure maintenance services here in the Town of Thompson. We have 95.97 miles of improved roads and 2.08 miles of unimproved roads that we are charged with maintaining. We handle all aspects of road maintenance, including mowing, sweeping, drainage, resurfacing, and also grading of our unimproved roads. Aside from the general maintenance of our road system, we also maintain parks & playgrounds, the Library Community Center, and a number of cemeteries in town.

The Transfer Station is also operated by the Public Works Department. Here in Thompson Recycling is a priority, and our Transfer Station operates with a wide range of recycling opportunities. Cardboard, paper, plastic, and glass are some of the many things we recycle. We also collect electronics, mercury products, brush, grass clippings and leaves.

Here at Public Works, we strive to do our best in maintaining our beautiful town year round. Our residents’ safety is our number one priority. Whether is a bright and sunny day or some of the harshest weather Mother Nature has to offer, we will be here protecting our town.
